The Golden State Warriors have played just four games in the 2019-20 NBA season, and the wheels have already fallen off entirely.
Superstar guard Steph Curry suffered a hand injury late in their home loss to the Phoenix Suns that was later diagnosed as a broken hand. The team announced Friday that Steph will miss three months after undergoing surgery and that he will be re-evaluated at that time.
With Klay Thompson likely out for the remainder of the season and trade rumors surrounding Draymond Green, Murphy's Law has really done a number on Golden State so far this season.
Curry himself has struggled in the team's first season in San Francisco, as his 20.3 points, 41% shooting percentage, and 24% clip from behind the arc are all far beneath Curry's usual levels of production.
Draymond, D'Angelo Russell, and Steve Kerr will still give this team a fighting chance, but the loss of Steph for half of the season likely ends Golden State's chances at a playoff run in a stacked Western Conference.
The Warriors need to either get unfathomably hot or hang on for dear life until Steph comes back, otherwise this season could become a wash in short order.
